Independent league slugger gets a chance with Braves

"Beau Torbert had just finished his third season with an independent league team called the Pheasants. The Sioux Falls Pheasants. Here’s a 27-year-old Alabama boy doggedly chasing a dream, playing indy-league baseball in South Dakota. Just hoping for another shot on a bigger stage, hoping to get noticed. He flirted with a .400 batting average all season before finishing at .394. Yes, .394. With 38 doubles, 24 homers, 100 RBIs. In 95 games. In any league, impressive."
